  1. If the last PCI slot works the best, then keep your card there. I also tried my Audigy in the middle PCI slot as others have recommended. However, I still had problems until I moved to the last PCI slot.
  2. Below is a screenshot example to illustrate what I'm talking about. Using the thread display modes, you can actually follow posts/conversation threads within a forum topic - you don't have to waste time looking for replies to postings you're interested in. You can also click on the message titles in the thread display to jump straight to a post. Having this feature helps wade through topics that have hundreds of postings.
  3. Just wondering if this feature can be enabled again. Thanks.
  4. Can we enable the Hybrid and Threaded modes for forum display? We used to have this way back before the forums went down. I think these forum displays are helpful when sorting through hundreds of posts on a topic.
  5. Check this out: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=77771 So it looks like the "mod" version doesn't like it when your computer is joined to a windows domain. No wonder this version crashed on every one of my stock runing machines.
  6. Also, I hope they make sure that SLI works flawlessly when it's released http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44874 AND make sure it's a bit more tollerant of the variety of PSUs out there http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35513 Sorry to rain the NF590 parade, I'm just hoping history doesn't repeat itself.
  7. I wonder if they'll get the temperature sensor right on this motherboard 'cause they definitely blew it on the Expert and Venus: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=31509 If I sound cynical, it's becuase I am.
  8. Yeah, it didn't look right. This XP install was carried over from a motherboard upgrade. I did try disabling APIC and setting XP as a "Standard PC" which seemd to redistribute the IRQs but it had side effects (no IRQ sharing at all and the PC didn't power down all the way). What did the trick was an XP upgrade/repair. Here's what the IRQs look like now: IRQ 0 System timer OK IRQ 1 Easy Internet Keyboard OK IRQ 5 NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management OK IRQ 6 Standard floppy disk controller OK IRQ 8 System CMOS/real time clock OK IRQ 9 Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System OK IRQ 12 Logitech-compatible Mouse PS/2 OK IRQ 13 Numeric data processor OK IRQ 14 NVIDIA nForce4 Parallel ATA Controller OK IRQ 15 NVIDIA nForce4 Parallel ATA Controller OK IRQ 16 OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller OK IRQ 18 NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT OK IRQ 19 Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM) OK IRQ 20 Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller OK IRQ 22 Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller OK IRQ 22 NVIDIA nForce4 Serial ATA Controller OK IRQ 22 NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator OK
  9. This wasn't a clean install The OS was carried over from another motherboard. I also didn't want to start over from scratch with a reinstall. What did the trick was a upgrade/repair.
  10. Tried that but the IRQ didn't budge. I also tried disabling all unused integrated devices and that didn't work either. The only thing that worked was an in-place XP upgrade/repair.
  11. It looks like it's just this particular game. Lot's of stuttering in American Wasteland but previoius PC versions ran smoothly. Guess they didn't do as good a job on porting the game this time around.
  12. Things were more stable once I did an "upgrade repair" with my XP+SP2 CD (which reset/redistributed my IRQs). But I would occasionally get a crash every once in a while. When I started play Oblivion - crashed within an hour of gameplay. I reset everything back to default speeds (CPU, RAM, Video, etc.) but still got crashes. Then I remembered that my video card came overclocked from the factory - so default on this card is actually overclocked. I decided to reset it to "default" speeds for a 7800 GT and viola! No more crashes. I'm both relieved that I've found the problem and bummed that I'll have to RMA this card and wait for it to come back.
  13. Well, if anyone is interested, I managed to get my IRQs reset/redistribued. I did an "upgrade repair" with my XP+SP2 CD. This keeps all of your settings and installed software so you don't have to start from scratch. Unfortunately, this didn't completely solve my crash problem.
